Im pretty sure there are lots of recordinds here without the exact dates provided. I didnt think it was an issue before. This was a small local band from east coast Canada that likely only had a few concerts recorded . I feel the date could be somewhat irrelevant in this case<BR><BR>Dr.YellowFever<BR>1999-xx-xx<BR>The Attic<BR>Halifax NS<BR><BR>Source SBD<BR><BR>01 Get Thru Tonite<BR>02 Good Times<BR>03 Family Crisis<BR>04 Acid Jazz<BR>05 Watch 'Em Now<BR>06 Music Sounds Better with You<BR>07 Disco-Very<BR><BR>This post was modified by EricMI on 2019-05-27 22:32:53

I never said it wasn't allowed previously. But, I am not going to request we allow it on the new uploader.

Seems like a closed minded approach. It worked fine before.<BR>I provided all the info available for a 20 year old recording.<BR>How do you advise I proceed here? Attempt to research out a date or make one up?<BR>

I suggest you keep an open mind and have some patience. I told you I had a workaround. My mind is wide open, but I'm not going to have a workaround be the first choice. Data integrity is more important than a twice a year situation. Your cooperation and understanding would have been appreciated as we worked through the details.<BR><BR>Workaround:<BR>1. Enter a real date. Any date from 1999 will work.<BR>2. Upload has usual.<BR>3. Allow the derive to complete before proceeding to step 4. This will take 15-30 min.<BR>4. Click Edit under the blue microphone on the left side. Choose Change the information on the next page.<BR>5. Change the date in the Date field to 1999-00-00.<BR><BR>

And, yes, attempting to research the actual date is always the first option.
